These are members of the senior class of 2014, football and track stars, and young men with their eye on the prize: graduation, college, the military, and the national guard.
We had a great conversation about achieving, aiming higher when others aren't aiming high for you, and pursuing a life of integrity. Of course, I had to rub it in - Abu and Lossine are in Brockport and called to tell me they were hungry. I couldn't help but rub it in that if they were in Connecticut like they were last year, they could have joined the food fest.
Shucks. Now I won't have leftovers for the week. And there will definitely not be a doggie bag mailed to the twins in Rochester. The food would have rotted anyway.
But on a good note, the laundry is done, the grass is cut, the grading is completed, I ate a good meal, and I'm ready for Monday - as ready as anyone can ever be to start a new work week.
